Welcome to

My name is Dustin and I am here to help.

What web browser are you having issues with, Safari, Mozilla firefox?

And when you say your system has went haywire, is anything going wrong besides websites failing to open?

I have played games on the PCH games site for weeks. Now I get an error message and it says the Mac is not compatible maps galaxy. Never had this problem before, and PCH sends me a link via email and I still can not use the site.

Lets try these two steps first as a test.

To open Disk Utility, from the Applications folder, open Utilities, and then double-click the Disk Utility icon.

In the column on the left, click your startup disk.

Click the First Aid tab, and then click Repair Disk Permissions. Disk Utility will reset any files and folders with incorrect settings.

Then next.

Go to the link below

Click to download the Mozilla Firefox setup file.

Once downloaded, run the file to install Mozilla.

When it asks, you don't have to import anything, or make it your default browser.

Once installed, run Mozilla Firefox.

Using mozilla firefox.. try the website again.. Is it working now Martha?
